How are you doing this week? It is summertime, but still enough news to read...
- let's start with an excerpt of Martin Grubenger's percussion show at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg - fantastic!
- an interview with the wonderful Steven Isserlis, witty as usual and with sound files of his recordings, worth reading and listening!
- an interview (in german) with Gregor Schwellenbach on WDR1, a classical composer moving within genres (classical, pop and club culture). He says that the classicals are too much afraid to be elite and that an attitude with a shrug could be better for everyone. Interesting!
